… and the meek will inherit the garbage and skips

for the weak have no power to fight, overcome,

but the righteous who stand and defend the oppressed

have the strength to defeat callous blight.

 

Yet how many stand,

lay siege to the scourge

of ruthless ambitions and gain

made simple via attachment and apathetic hunger

which abstracts the growling growing pains of young life,

stymied by ruthless ambition and greed,

oblivious to all but the bubble of I and ME

and wanton over-need that feeds

upon the meek and weak and oppressed

who hoke in the garbage and skips.

 

For greed survives where no clear conscience can.

 

Peace leaves but a fleeting footprint there,

Or none at all.

 

Ultimately inside,

they’re hollow of spirit,

empty of compassion

to tread on the humble

who quietly endure

whilst hollow of hope,

empty of gut.

A demonic imbalance.

A hellish rut.

None can win.

Eventually fate

will declare

a welcome end to us all…
